What is Sole Water?
Getting Keto Adapted
Adding in Sole Water is important when you begin the ketogenic diet because it will help you combat low energy, low moods, constipation and headaches. Instead of adding in carbs for energy, you must think about your diet and energy differently.
Within the first two to four days of lowering your carb intake to below 20 grams a day, you will start showing elevated blood ketones, which marks the start of your body utilizing nutritional ketosis (and lipolysis) and shifting its primary fuel source to fat. However, you might have issues with energy, moods, headaches, or other common “keto flu” symptoms. To combat the symptoms of keto flu, you first must make sure to keep your water and electrolytes up; this is why Sole Water is so important. When becoming keto-adapted, your kidneys release much of the salt (and associated water) that they hold onto with higher-carb diets. You need to add more water and electrolytes (Sole Water) to ensure that you don’t get dehydrated. You also might want to reduce your workouts and activity levels during the first couple weeks.
A well-formulated ketogenic diet requires getting enough electrolytes and water (Sole Water). It is an important part of becoming keto-adapted, especially in the first few weeks after making the switch to keto. If you do a carb-up, that will make you retain water (carbohydrates make you retain water) but won’t fix the problem of electrolyte imbalance. CLICK HERE for more on carb ups. Let’s take a deeper look at electrolytes and their benefits.
Even if adapting to a keto lifestyle doesn’t cause any obvious side effects, you need extra water and sodium. Eliminating packaged foods will likely deplete a lot of the sodium from your diet. If you suffer the fierce headaches that some people get when beginning a low-carb diet, add sodium.

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“Thank you Maria! I am a diabetic and have been struggling for years to get it under control, I have been on tons of med’s that made me sick and then I just gave up.
Well I found a new doctor and she recommended your “Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking cookbook”. Now I have tried just about everything but only lasted a few weeks to a couple of months.
So I thought OK, well when I started my A1C was 10.3 and my cholesterol was off the charts. So I am now in this for 4 months and just got back from the doctors. My A1C is 6.7, I’ve lost 8 pounds and my cholesterol is only a couple points out of range from being normal. To say the least, I am stunned. I feel great, and ready to reach my next goal.
I love your recipes and your video’s. Keep up the good work, we need more people like you to guide us in the right direction and get healthy.” – Debra
